In the Peter Vehicle Trophee Legende, Grand Prix and Pre-War Sportscars, it absolutely was Thierry Chanoine (n° 68) at the wheel of a Riley who took the lead and held it right up to the finish line. Although Gregory Ramouna's Bugatti tracked him nose-to-tail with the first half of the race, within the end it was J. J. Bally in his BMW 328 who took second place on the winner's podium.
The Trophee Junior, Formula Junior (1957-1963), saw John Fryda in his Lotus 22 take the lead from the off for your first leg, but he was then outflanked by Jonathan Hugues (n° 91) at the wheel of his Brabham BT6, who took control of the rest of the race. As for third place, it had been neck-and-neck between Philippe Buhofer (n° 53) and Joao Paulo Campos Costa (n° 56) until the half-way mark when the Portuguese driver let a place on the podium slip through his fingers.
A dogged struggle between Arnaud Rechede (n° 55) and Alain Girardet (n° 1) marked the first round of the Trophee Pyrenees, Formula Ford (1966 1981), a duel that was cut short on the last lap when the n° 1 did a 180° spin. It had been a mistake that opened the way for Olivier Rechede, Arnaud's brother, to take second place. The two local drivers were followed by Pierre Lombardi (n° 3). The Rechede brothers (n° 55 and n° 33) started the second race very well but a minor collision worked in Alain Girardet's (n° 1) and David Zollinger's (n° 10) favour.
In the Trophee Argentin, Grand Prix Pre-61 front engine, it absolutely was Julian Bronson at the wheel of a Scarab Offenhauser, who dominated the race after Paddins Dowling experienced a problem at start up.

While in the second round, the same names were first over the finish line but in a different order.

Peter Auto's Trophee Phil Hill, Sixties' Endurance Pre-66 Touring, saw Yvan Mahe's (n° 1) and Michel Lecourt's (n° 19) AC Cobras lead from the start, but the n° 19 was forced to abandon the race after 7 laps due to clutch failure.
